What Are The Most Common Factors That Influence The Acquisition of a Second Language?

In learning a second language, it isn’t always as easy as it sounds regardless of how good you are in picking up new foreign words and learning new skills. Sometimes, your progress will be affected by certain factors that could be beyond your control. Here are some of the most common factors that can influence how fast you learn a new language.

Your Teacher or Tutor

If you signed up for a course in a formal setting, then you have to adjust to your teacher. You might not come across a teacher who is willing to cater to your specific needs especially if it is in a group setting. If you want your own pace, your own style, and even your own approach, then you’re better off with a one-on-one tutor.

Your Environment

There will always be people around you who will intentionally or not, try to discourage you from learning – anything. These people just want things to stay the way it is, and not have to deal with changes. It may get even more difficult to learn this second language if the person bringing you down is someone close to you. It could lead to confusion, distraction, and slower learning.

Your Materials

There are good and bad learning materials and you have to be sure you get the effective materials. However, it isn’t always about the latest teaching tools to be introduced because each person will have his own personal preference. For instance, if you use material that is not computer generated, it might not interest you. Seeing that you are online and reading as much as you can indicates that you enjoy using the computer; or at the very least, you understand the benefits of surfing. Thus, choose material that will keep your interest high.

Distractions

The all-timer factor that can kill the best intentions. Generally, there is nothing wrong with doing other things, aside from learning a second language. In fact, you should have a life outside of studying. However, there’s a time and a place for everything, so when it’s time to study that second language, focus on just that. Turn off the TV, iPod, radio, Facebook, Twitter, and any other entertainment devices you normally use. Keep friends at bay, and tell them to wait. If they’re really your friends, then they’ll give you space.

Yourself

You can be your own worst enemy, if you let it happen. This can be seen in almost any endeavor – sports, education, talent, skill, or relationships. Often, we tend to put ourselves down to feel better. Now, if you do this, you stop yourself from being the best you can be. You may think – it’s only a second language, so nothing serious, right? Wrong. In anything you do or try to accomplish whether it’s climbing a mountain or biking to the next street, if you don’t do it right, you’ll never get there.

All these factors can be used to hamper your learning, but they can also be turned around and be beneficial to learning a new language successfully.

International Schools and Teachers Interested in Teaching Overseas Flock to Boston this Week

Posted by Admin | Posted in Colegios | Posted on 23-11-2013

Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) February 10, 2012

The lobby of the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, MA is busy with teachers from all over the country walking purposefully as they check their schedules for their next appointments. This is an Overseas Schools Teacher Recruiting Fair, and according to The International Educator (TIE), a leading newspaper covering the international school market, its an annual rite of passage for school heads looking to hire staff for their schools and educators interested in teaching overseas.

Rita McDermott, a Maryland native, made the journey to Cambridge from Colombia where she taught at Colegio Bolivar an international school in Cali, Colombia. I loved teaching in Colombia, people said it would be very difficult but I wanted to see for myself, said McDermott. “I absolutely loved it the people in Columbia are the most incredible people I have ever met I loved the food, the landscapes, the dancing, especially salsa! The seasoned international school teacher of high school English is now looking for her next assignment a little further afield. I want to cross an ocean this time and experience more cultures, said McDermott as she rushed off to her next interview.

The recruiting fair was organized by Search Associates a recruiting organization for international schools that has been organizing these fairs for over twenty years. Nearly 500 candidates were in attendance this year making the rounds of interviews with recruiters representing over 140 schools. The process has been described as the speed dating version of job-hunting — candidates book multiple appointments with visiting school representatives and interview back-to-back with as many as a half a dozen schools to see if there is a match. The process is equally grueling for school recruiters who have to balance the need to see as many candidates as possible while extending offers to teachers who they feel represent the best fit for their school before those candidates accept other offers.

This same scene is playing out across town at Bostons Westin Copley Place Hotel where ISS (International School Services) is running their overseas schools recruitment fair which ends today. International K-12 education is a big business with annual income of approximately $ 27 billion dollars (US) a year, employing over 270,000 teachers and administrators.

An estimated 75% – 80% of candidates get offers here at the fair, according to Search Associates founder and director, John Magagna, however, not all candidates accept the offers. Magagna estimates that between 15 -20% of candidates dont accept offers on the spot because they are holding out for other opportunities, or they simply need more time to mull over their decision.

Not all teachers walk away from the event with an offer in-hand. Sheelah Shortell, a high school Spanish teacher from a rural district in upstate New York, is pursuing her first overseas teaching job. In the midst of her districts budget cuts and imminent faculty layoffs, she felt this was the perfect time to act on her dream of teaching and living overseas. I found the energy at the fair absolutely thrilling, said Shortell. For the past several years teachers in my school have been so demoralized with the specter of job cuts looming overhead, that to walk into this charged environment, where you can feel the energy and enthusiasm everywhere, all I could think is: I want to teach with these people! remarked Shortell. “Teaching at an international school will give me the opportunity to remember why I started teaching in the first place, said Shortell.

As a first time participant in the fair, Shortell feels shes walking away with good contacts and a better idea of what international teaching is all about. My eyes are wide open about the process and what to expect at an international school, said Shortell. I know it wont happen overnight, but its a process and Im now proactive in that process.

To further enhance her chances of landing her dream job, Shortell stopped by the TIE (The International Educator) booth and bought a subscription to the newspaper and website where she can post her resume and search TIEs database of international school positions. I want to cover all my bases, so Im joining TIE as well, said Shortell before leaving the fair. I have a good feeling about this.

Ms. Shortell and others, who walked away from the fair without an offer in-hand, should remain optimistic as job offers often follow the fair in a matter of weeks or months. Recruiters are still making offers to candidates they met at the February fair into the months of April, May, and June when they are completing their hiring for the upcoming school year, according to Magagna. People think its over after the fair, but its not nearly one-third of offers continue to trickle-in during the spring, informs Magagna.

Forrest Broman, Executive Director of The International Educator, agrees, Headmasters will continue posting their vacancies on the TIE web site, tieonline.com, until all of their vacancies are filled and candidates who continue their search will find jobs.

This encouraging message is not lost on Sheelah Shortell, Ive been waiting a lifetime for this teaching adventure, said Shortell, I can wait a few months more.

The International Educator (TIE), located in Hyannis, MA, is a non-profit organization that for 25 years has been dedicated to developing links among teachers and the extensive American and international schools network worldwide.

Give your CV the Spanish filip with a Language Course

You probably heard that first from a Latin American beauty on a televised global beauty pageant. The Spanish greeting is spoken around the world — more than any other greeting in the world except those spoken in Mandarin Chinese. Among the fluent speakers of Spanish are Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Paulo Coelho, Penelope Cruz and Jennifer Lopez — but Spanish has a footprint in a wide array of professions. As the second most- widely spoken native language in the world with a whopping 417 million speakers, Spanish is a truly global language, recognised as one of the six official languages by the UN. It’s a great idea to have Spanish on your CV if you work in international business houses, international agencies, the tourism and hospitality industry, diplomatic services, teaching, translation, or even the government services.

A good place to start is Instituto Cervantes, Connaught Place, funded and run by the Spanish Government. Ana Isabel Reguillo Pelayo, who heads the Spanish language programme, says the institute is currently adapting its language courses to be consistent with the levels established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Many of these Foreign Language Courses are available at suitable timings for students to take after college hours. It takes approximately three years to finish all the levels. There are no academic nor language based pre-requisites for entry into the course.

The language courses are classified under two categories: General Spanish and special courses. The entrants are divided into two groups: above 14 and below 14 and taught accordingly. The CEFR divides the learners further into three large categories and these are in turn subdivided into six levels: ‘ A’, the basic user level, with the sub- categories A1 (Breakthrough) and A2 (Waystage).

The second- level or ‘B’ is the independent user level. This consists of B1 (Threshold) and B2 ( Vantage). The third level is ‘ C’, the proficient user and comprises of C1 (Effective Operational Proficiency) and C2 (Mastery).

Since the institution is funded and run by the Spanish government, the fee is very reasonable — Rs. 7,500 for 60 hours for the general Spanish course. Special courses, which are tailor-made for students who want to focus on specific aspects of the language, cost Rs. 130 per hour. These include: Spanish for children and teenagers, preparatory courses for the CBSE board exams, Spanish for hotels, and for tourist guides. There are also courses offered specifically for translation and interpretation purposes.

The best way to learn a foreign language is not by mugging up textbooks, but by watching films and reading books and magazines in the language. At the Instituto Cervantes, students have access to a well- stocked library, which offers a broad selection of literature, films, magazines and newspapers from the Spanish- speaking world.

Online MBA worth it?

Jonas
I talked the other day with an acquaintance, who is preparing to go to Barcelona to the MBA. For the 20 months of schooling, will pay 45 000 euros. Are not included in housing costs. Schooling you pay itself and pay her parents.
What interests me is, how many completed MBA values %u200B%u200Bin Croatian companies? As a person with an Online MBA in IT degree can expect in terms of wages and in terms of promotion?

presvetli

Of course, not talking about senior management, which is additionally improved, but the young people who are just starting.

same

As the MBA, it’s not just all the same.
The concrete in the boat, was voted one of the best. Kill of a deal, but chances are you already mobilized in the first year. Awful lot of companies recruit people from there. Even if you take into account that the head of the MBA Universidad de Navarra, more so if you know that this is the headquarters of Opus Dei, and even if you know that Opus Dei is one of the world’s largest financial corporations, and even if you’re Catholic, definitely worth it ( they need the troops in large firms). There are a lot of one year executive MBA. If you want to go out and have a good place to put the best, but you have to choose a best school for them to recruit (there are 10 or so). STP is concerned Republic, you can quickly get to the salary> 10000 kuna (I’m talking about the minimum), so you see if it’s worth. In the long term, these titles remains a lifetime, not a sufficient factor for success, but almost certainly at the end of the return on investment.

Jonas

What are you saying? That the Online MBA is not worth it if you think working in Croatia, or not at all worth it (even if you plan to go out to work)?

traderhr

It is obvious that the MBA is not worth it if you want to do in Croatia! Distance learning MBA is for people who will work in some of the developed countries! But again I think most well-known managers are not successful in their jobs because of a course or for some faculty, but are successful because of their personality!

Jonas

I agree your attitude about the distance learning mba and the work of Croatia. Just a little overreacting to the undermining of education in general.

traderhr

just want to say that many graduates of management but are not successful, and managers …

so much!

Hello everyone

pkvesic

colleagues, is really? How is it possible to hear that someone can obezver%u0111ivati %u200B%u200Bknowledge on any level?

Croatian managers are more known for its exceptional soposobnostima for improvisation and working in impossible conditions, with respect to the level of knowledge that is available (very low). Ma … would turn to introduce a new system of values %u200B%u200Bthrough their work and knowledge!
So … Long live the one year executive MBA! Truth is not something special, but like everything in life is up to us to build ourselves as individuals and affects their actions, first to the people around him, and then on to a better environment and more.
It is a process. I is not for cowards who think their “little me” in such Hrvatkoj we do not need and let them go outside.

It will take maybe tens of years until stavr in the labor market does not fix but until then I’m working on that at least we have some standards of knowledge.
Just … you know … What worries me is that I work with a boss who has no idea about the job and I shall show for achieving perfect moment … I fly east. Strepljenje is my answer. What do you think?

Not everyone can have their company, and someone needs to build standards managerstva.

So much of me,
